Implementing the TRUSTist WordPress Plugin
Please follow the steps below to add the TRUSTist widget to your website using our WordPress plugin.
Step 1 – Installing the plugin
Install the plugin here – https://wordpress.org/plugins/trustist-reviewer/. Please ensure that your website is running on the WordPress version 5.0.1 or higher in order to use this plugin.
Step 2 – Navigating to settings
Login to the admin of your site and select ‘Settings’. From the list of options under settings, select ‘TRUSTist REVIEWer’. If that option is not appearing, the plugin may need to be activated by navigating to ‘plugins’, finding the TRUSTist REVIEWer plugin and clicking ‘activate’.
Step 3 – Configuring settings
Once you are in the settings panel of the plugin, you will be able to see a screen like the image below.

The easiest way to do this is to edit either the header or footer of your site and add your widget tag wherever you would like the widget to appear.
